  Set (computer science) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It corresponds with the mathematical concept of set, but with the restriction that it has to be finite.
Ideal set data structures make it efficient to check if an object is in the set, as well as enabling other useful operations such as iterating through all the objects in the set, performing a union or intersection of two sets, or taking the complement of a set in some limited domain.
One of the earliest languages to support sets was Pascal; many languages now include it, whether in the core language or in a standard library.

Cantor's theorem states that the cardinality of the set of all subsets of a set A is strictly greater than the cardinality of A itself.
The "number of elements" in a certain set is called the cardinal number of the set and denoted A for a set A (for a finite set this is an ordinary number, for an infinite set it differentiates between different "degrees of infiniteness", named \aleph_0 (aleph zero), \aleph_1, \aleph_2...).

Computers may directly model the problem being solved, in the sense that the problem being solved is mapped as closely as possible onto the physical phenomena being exploited.
By definition a general-purpose computer can solve any problem that can be expressed as a program and executed within the practical limits set by: the storage capacity of the computer, the size of program, the speed of program execution, and the reliability of the machine.
Computers with general-purpose capabilities are called Turing-complete and this status is often used as the capability that defines modern computers, however, this definition is.

The Introduction to Computer Science course has grown out of an interest to teach a "CS0" - an introduction to computer science for non-science majors - course that has direct applications to the student's area of interest - whether it be politics, social studies, law, business, literature, history, or whatever.
We encourage these projects to be in their chosen major of study - possibly a survey for the psychology class on students and depression, or a survey of law facts that arise in a student's pre-law studies, or an enrollment and voting form for a student's interest in sports.
